The John Calvin Brewer Band will be playing Fat Jack's annual Fat Tuesday party tonight.

The band got its start in the Dallas, and Nashville  area and says that it has a pretty wide influence from nostalgic blues from the 30's and 40's to the great vintage 60's and 70's. Even today's rock makes it way into their shows.

The band is made up of the following members John Calvin Brewer on vocals and guitar, Shannon Sabbatini on vocals and bass, Miranda Brewer on vocals and Paul Stivitz on drums.

Fat Tuesday is the day before Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. It is more commonly known as Mardi Gras, which is simply Fat Tuesday in French. It gets its name from the custom, in many Catholic countries, of marking the day with feasting before the fasting season of Lent begins.

Fat Jack's is located on Stateline in Texarkana. Find them on Facebook.
